Iran has reportedly put its military forces on “full high alert” ahead of any expected strike. Israeli officials believe the country’s air defense systems will be able to handle the threat.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said that Israel was ready to respond to any attack by the Islamic Republic and has “completed preparations for a response against any scenario that would develop against Iran.”

After an assessment on Sunday with top army brass at the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv, Gallant made the statement.

In televised remarks last Friday, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said an Iranian response was coming, vowing that “the Iranian response to the targeting of the consulate in Damascus is definitely coming against Israel.”

An adviser to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened Israeli embassies, stating that “the embassies of the Zionist regime are no longer safe.”

Analysts viewed the raid as an escalation of Israel’s campaign against Iran and its regional proxies, risking a wider war beyond the Israel-Hamas conflict in the Gaza Strip.

Mohammad Reza Zahedi, the top commander killed in the Damascus airstrike, was reportedly responsible for IRGC Quds Force operations in Syria and Lebanon, as well as ties with Hezbollah.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly alluded to the strike at a security cabinet meeting, vowing to respond to a prospective Iranian attack.

Unnamed US intelligence sources stated that Iran is unlikely to attack Israel directly and will instead urge its proxies in the region to launch attacks on its behalf.

Israel has been conducting air force drills, including preparations to target Iranian nuclear facilities and key infrastructure, amidst threats of retaliation from Iranian officials following the Damascus airstrike.

A billboard in Tehran displaying a portrait of Mohammad Reza Zahedi with a Hebrew slogan saying 'You will be punished' further intensified tensions.
